Are you worried about crowded schools? Then plan to attend the Greater Crofton Council meeting at 7 p.m. today in the Crofton library. The council is to focus on the problem of crowded schools.

The council is composed of representatives from neighborhoods and communities in the Crofton area, but outside the Crofton tax district. The tax district is not a member, but usually sends a representative.

The meetings are open to residents of the greater Crofton area, including the tax district.
